Thoughts on the body building industry below - The body building industry has grown tremendously over the last few years. From an outsider’s perspective many people associate steroids hardcore workouts and discipline with body building. You also hear people say “I would never want to look like that” or “I couldn’t do that.” You might also hear about the myriad of supplements and all the IG fitness models capitalizing on this trend. I used to think those accusations were unfounded but there’s truth to a lot of what people say. - As a female I get this all the time “I don’t want to get too bulky.” To each his own I suppose! I don’t consider myself bulky and I love the positive outlet that fitness has given me throughout the years. - Competing in only one amateur does not make me an expert on this subject but it does provide perspective. Something to always remember whether you are competing or just trying to get in shape is to have FUN. Don’t forget to smile! Enjoy the process.
